On tap. Clear dark brown color with tan head. Aroma has some fruity hops and roasted malts. Taste starts slightly sweet and fruity but gets toasted with medium bitterness on the finish. Also some nutty malts and grapefruity hops. Body is on the light side with medium carbonation. Really easy drinking and tasty porter.

12 ounce bottle purchased at the brewery and consumed at a hotel, on to the beer:

This porter is ink black colored and topped with a half-inch of head and whispy lacing. The aroma doesn't hit the nose hard; soft aromas of vague roast and esters and little else. However, the taste comes back in force. What helps it is the medium-full body and chewiness to the body, plus a flavor that hits your palate. The smokiness is pleasant, akin to smoked meats. Waves of molasses, a kiss of esters, and a kiss of esters gives Bully! touches to what could be considered to be a smoked porter. One thing is certain, it's worthy of being in the Boulevard stable.

Brown pour 2/7" tan head. Aroma of brown malt and toffee.

Taste hit some hoppy cascade like notes. Carbonation and hops will keep this lively, not overly thick. Just as much brown as black and chocolate malt. Bitterness chalked up a little.

Somewhere between English and American porter.

I was shocked by how good this looked when I poured it into a frosty pint glass. Pitch black and a two fingers thick puffy head. Medium-thick bodied with rich flavor. Not as good as Founders Porter, but better than Deschutes Black Butte Porter imo.

Dark color with thick creamy tan head on top. Faint smell of roasted malt, caramel, and chocolate. Taste of caramel and cocoa the roasted malt and a hint of cherry. Really stays with you after the finish. This one sounded better on paper. I'm a fan of many of boulevard's offerings but this one was not very eventful.
